Why use Windows XP in 2020
Some people just think XP is better then the more recent versions of Windows.
But what is a fact is that some games and software that was made for Windows XP doesn’t work on later versions of Windows.
Also people who have an old computer that cant run Windows 8 or later and don’t want to use Linux use XP so they can still use these computers even today. Why trash a good working computer when we have Windows XP?
